The Windsor-Essex Young Worker Council

The Windsor-Essex Young Worker Council is a great opportunity for young workers to become actively involved in the community, addressing and acting upon the concerns of young workers. This program will allow young workers to develop and utilize leadership skills by actively representing their peers. Members of the council will be enabled to create meaningful relationships through various labour, governmental and business networks available to them through WOHIS. The council will then work with these established partners to help improve the conditions for young workers in Windsor-Essex.

Young workers are the most vulnerable in Canada, both in regards to Employment Standards discrepancies and occupational injuries. Yet young workers are represented the least at legislatures of all levels. The Windsor-Essex Young Worker Council will give students a voice, and a presence in the Windsor area and is a step in the right direction to creating quality jobs for youth. This aspect of the young worker council is unique as it empowers youth to assist youth in achieving change. By becoming actively involved in the community through the council, all young workers in Windsor-Essex will benefit from its presence in the community.
